The Vancouver International Maritime Centre hosted a dinner on December 8, 2016 at the Pan Pacific Hotel to welcome senior executives Harry Theochari from Norton Rose Fulbright's London office and Brian Devine with their New York office as they celebrated the merger with Vancouver-based Bull Housser. Effective January, 2017, Bull Housser will take on the Norton Rose moniker and become a part of one of the fastest growing global law firms with over 3,800 lawyers in more than 50 offices around the world, including more than 650 in Canada alone. Watch for the full article in the February issue of BC Shipping News as we report on an exclusive interview with Theochari, Devine and Shelley Chapelski, one of Vancouver's leading maritime lawyers. The move is a significant milestone for Vancouver's maritime community, recognizing the growth of the industry here and the access to global expertise.
